Well we had the Enterprise E’s Cousteau three issues ago, now it’s time for Voyager’s Aeroshuttle, its equivalent of the Captain’s Yacht. In fact the runabout-like ship was designed with an emphasis on atmospheric flight, but like most auxiliary craft it is warp capable. Now we never got to see it in action in Voyager […]Read more "Aeroshuttle"
Today Startrek.com has posted an update on the six latest models. There are ships here we’ve been expecting for a while plus a wildcard. 85: Federation Holoship, from Insurrection. Discussed occasionally on Twitter and Facebook so not a big surprise 86: Gorn Ship, from TOS, remastered. Again, we knew this was due. 87: UTS Aeon, from […]Read more "Issue 85 to 90 News"

Looking back at my past reviews reminded me that I should point out that you can access a list of all the reviews dating back to August 2013 by clicking the ‘burger’/menu button in the top right […]Read more "Romulan Shuttle"

Now this is non-canon but according to Memory Alpha the Baxial is a Talaxian Drexia class freighter. I think it’s not […]Read more "Baxial"

No news yet of what the issue number is, but I imagine it’ll be out in the UK some point this year. Thanks to Ben Robinson for this, who posted it on his […]Read more "Collection News: Enterprise J"
Several Starfleet ships have their own yachts integrated into the ship’s hull, separate from their shuttlecraft compliment. Both the Enterprise D and E have one as does Voyager and the Equinox (the Waverider). With the exception of the Enterprise E’s yacht, Cousteau, none of them have made an appearance on screen, only as an outline […]Read more "NCC-1701-E Captain’s Yacht"
The Raider is the second Bajoran ship in the collection and like the first one, the Solar Sailor, this is a non-warp, non-impulse vessel. It is similar in size to a Federation runabout but considerably cramped inside with only a tiny cockpit for pilot and co-pilot. No doubt this is because the engine takes up […]Read more "Bajoran Raider"
